Giving customers more space is in a crossover is what Hyundai set out to do with the Tucson. With styling provided by Hyundai's Frankfurt design center, The Tucson's design of its sculpted hood, wraparound headlights and rear roof spoiler further set it apart from every other CUV on the road. Whatever the weather, hot or cold, Tucson offers features that protect you from the elements. Front solar glass keeps the glaring sun at bay while the rear privacy glass keeps wandering eyes from intruding. When the air turns frosty you'll appreciate heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators. Not only does the Tucson have more passenger volume than comparable vehicles, it deploys all this extra space far more thoughtfully. The Tucson has room to spare with the seats up, but fold down the 60/40 split rear seats and you'll have more than enough room to hold a mountain bike in the 55 cubic feet of space. Based on driving conditions, the Intelligent Torque Controlled Coupling at the heart of the Tucson all-wheel-drive system automatically adjusts torque distribution and allows for a 50/50 torque split between front and rear wheels, for better handling and mileage. With increased traction and standard 18-inch tires on the LIMITED, the Tucson takes on mud and snow with assurance. The Tucson GLS' 2.0L, 4-cylinder engine gets up to an EPA-estimated 29 MPG Highway, while the SE and LIMITED's 2.4L Theta engine with CVVT steps up the horsepower to 182 and still reaches an impressive EPA-estimated 28 MPG Highway. Get there more safely and quickly with Tucson's technology, including an available integrated Bluetooth hands-free phone system that lets you take calls on the road, without taking your hand off the wheel. The available touchscreen navigation system with a rearview camera for backing up, and a premium audio system to keep you entertained every step of the way. The 2014 Hyundai Tucson sets itself apart due to eye-catching body sculpting with an almost European feel. With a gorgeously contoured hood, two tiered grille, sloping roofline and windswept curves on its profile, the Tucson has a fresh, yet dramatic look that must be experienced in person.
